My Family, the Croodsv
Eep: "My name's Eep and this is my family, the Croods. We never had the chance to explore the outside world because of my dad's one rule: Never leave the cave."
Grug: "New is always bad. Never not be afraid!"
Eep: "We never had a chance to explore the outside world, but what we didn't know was that our world was about to change."
Eep gives a quick overview of her family, the Croods. They are cave people and have spent their entire lives in a cave due to dad's rule about never leaving. This really gets to Eep who longs to experience what else is out there.

The Story of Crispy Bearv
Grug: "Tonight we'll hear the story of Crispy Bear. A long time ago this little bear was alive because she listened to her father. So she was happy, but Crispy had one terrible problem. She was filled with curiosity. Yes, and one day she saw something new and died!"
Thunk: "Just like that?"
Gran: "Same ending as everyday"
Thunk: "I get it, dad. I will never do anything new or different."
Grug: "Good man, Thunk"
In an effort to remind his family never to leave the cave, Grug tells a story about a young girl bear who died after seeing something new. While daughter Eep is annoyed by the constant directives to never leave the cave, Thunk buys into it, much to Grug's pleasure.

Family Road Tripv
Grug: "Just think, our whole family packed together on a long, slow trip across country. We'll tell stories. We'll laugh. We'll become closer as a family." [Sandy, the baby, bites Grug's face.] "Ah, get her off!"
Ugga: "If you're not ready to challenge her then don't look her in the eye!"
Gran: "Could you keep your big giant arms on your side of the trail?!"
Grug: "You want me to turn this family around? Do you? Because I will turn this family around so fast!"
Thunk: "Dad, I gotta go!"
Grug: "Come on, you can hold it."
Gran: "I'm not dying on an empty stomach."
Ugga: "Ugh, we're all pretty tired."
Grug: "We'll eat when we get there."
Gran: "It's taking too long! I'm grabbing a snack." [Gran tries to eat Belt, the sloth, but Belt pulls a knife on Gran.]
Guy: "Don't do that. He's not food. He's a pet, my pet."
Gran: "What's a pet?"
Guy: "An animal you don't eat"
Gran: "We call those children."
Eep: [Smitten with Guy] "Isn't this fun? We're taking our first trip together."
While Grug is excited about a family road trip, the rest of his family is not as amused. Like a typical non-caveperson family on a road trip, someone needs to use the restroom, another is hungry and the teenage girl is focused on the hot, new boy.

The World Is Endingv

Belt: "Dun dun dun!"
The Croods meet Guy along with Guy's pet sloth Belt. Guy informs the family of the pending disaster, all of which comes as a shock to the once happy yet highly sheltered family.

I Call Them Shoesv

Eep: "What is that?"
Guy: "It's fire!"
Grug: "Ahh, the sun is in his hands!"
Eep: "No, it's fire."
Ugga: "Where did it come from?"
Eep: "He made it."
Grug: "Make some for me."
Eep: "It doesn't come out of him."
Grug: "Make it! Make it!"
Guy: "You know, you're a lot like your daughter."
Eep: "Oh great, now he's broken."
Ugga: "Aww, it's a baby sun."
Grug: "Stay back!" [steps in the fire and screams] "No, no, no, no, wait!" Thunk: "It likes me! Ahh, it's biting me!"
Grug: "Try hiding from it in the tall, dry grass."
When Guy and Eep introduce fire to the rest of the Croods, clearly no one has any idea what they are seeing. Thunk however finds out real quick when he is lit on fire. Grug on the other hand advises Thunk to hide from the flames in a very flammable patch of dry grass.

Gran: "Still alive!"
Grug: "It's still early."
Eep complains about not being able to leave the cave calling her three day stay as forever. Before they can head out though they have to find Gran, who, much to Grug's disappointment, has not died at her old age of 45.

Gran: [laughs] "I'm loving this."
After venturing into the new land the Croods come upon a monkey. Grug thinks he can yell and scream at the monkey to scare it away but the monkey is highly unimpressed.

It Looks Dangerousv
Grug: "Wait, it looks dangerous."
Eep: "Dad, you say that about everything!"
Eep: "Oh, really? Okay"
Like a typical teen, Eep isn't exactly excited by her dad's attempt to shelter her and goes against his recommendations to stay far from the edge of a cliff. Only after her crush Guy agrees about the danger does she listen, which aggravates father Grug.

We Should Go There
Eep: "Whoa, you really need to see this. We should go there!"
Following the earthquake that causes their cave home's walls to collapse, Eep marvels at the world outside and urges everyone else to come see it. Her father, Grug, on the other hand is less than excited to venture out of their safe zone.

Eep: "What do you call this?"
Guy: "A trap"
Eep: "So, what do we do?"
Guy: "How's your acting?" [Eep and Guy animate leaves like a puppet to attract a bird.] "You're good at this!" [They end up tangled up in an embrace which angers the bird, who grabs Guy and flings him.]
Eep: "Uh, it didn't step in your trappy thing."
Guy: Yeah, I noticed!"
Guy tries to catch a large bird in a rope trap by attracting it using a puppet shaped like a fellow bird. This plan backfires however when Guy and Eep end up tangled in a passionate embrace leading the bird to grab Guy and throw him far away.

Come with Me
Grug: "Okay, Guy, now what?"
Guy: "I can help you. Come with me."
Grug: "It's too far."
Gran: "I'll never live long enough to get there."
Grug: "Let's do it!"
Guy urges the family to come with him before the world ends. The sell to Grug however is hard as the Croods have only ever known a life in their cave but after Grug realizes that Gran might die on the trip, he's game.
